Companies (Amendment) Act 2019 (the “Act”)
The Companies (Amendment) Act 2019 was signed into law on 11 April 2019 and is expected to be commenced towards the end of 2019. The purpose of the Act is to amend section 343 of the Companies Act 2014.
Currently there is a two-step process for a company when filing its annual return with the CRO, each step permitting up to a maximum of 28 days. The Act has merged these two periods of 28 days to provide a single step with a maximum of 56 days to complete the Financial Statements and Annual Return filing process.
Upon commencement of the 2019 Act, every company will have a single period of 56 day period from their Annual Return Date to file the Financial Statements and Form B1.
